    Schools in Mexico are teaching their students to dive to the floor and cover their heads, as part of a drill to protect themselves from being caught in the crossfire from battles between drugs gangs.

    Mexico's drug war is bursting into the lives of young children, especially in violent northern border cities and schools in the state of Guerrero and Nuevo Leon are now required to teach the safety drills.

    It takes me back to the days when we only had to worry about Russia bombing the hell out of us.

    Sad.... And the President of Mexico has the nerve to come here and demand we loosen up our immigration policies to help his people. If was doing his job effectively they wouldn't feel the need to flock here by the millions.

    They'll keep coming as long as no American is shooting in their direction.
